Try a few groups on a steady sand bag instead of the bipod on the front of your rifle.

Re: What should I expect from a .243.

If my memory serves me right, I am 73 and have shot a 243 in my younger years quite a bit. I have a 10 twist Remington 700 243 that shoots 100 grain lead very good. Longest shot at a deer 450-500 yards went 20 yards and folded. If the 100 grain you tried was terrible. There are many different bullets to try 85,90 95, and various manufacturers of 100 garain bullets. You might want to trade the 100 grainers you tried and didn't like for a variety of 6MM bullets that I spoke of. If you like let me know how mant of the 100 grain bullets you have and I will send you the amount of various bullets I spoke of. Use the PM option to contact me. I have tried several different bullets till I found what a particular rifle liked. Lou
